Daniel Cormier Says Brock Lesnar ‘Didn’t Want The Smoke’

Daniel Cormier can pursue whatever his interests might be after his MMA career is over. He has that luxury and Brock Lesnar does as well.

The Beast Incarnate could have decided to have another fight in the UFC and have DC as his opponent. Unfortunately, things could be worked out in a financial sense.

While speaking at the UFC 241 media day, Daniel Cormier was asked about a potential fight against Brock Lesnar. The way DC sees it, Lesnar just didn’t want to take a chance against him.

“He didn’t want the smoke. Brock decided to stay in the WWE and I think it’s smart, right? You either go and perform or you come and fight me. It just makes more sense to stay in the WWE.”

Brock Lesnar did decide to stay with WWE, but he is still making a truckload of money. Daniel Cormier very well could have the same option, but he was rumored for a non-wrestling role as a broadcaster instead.

Fans might not see Daniel Cormier vs Brock Lesnar due to this separation between companies, but you can also be sure that Daniel Cormier will be a very popular downloadable character in WWE 2K20 so fans can play out this match in a WWE ring.
